You can. Just remove it from your favorites and do it again.

Curiosity takes me to DPC once in a while, but I can't remember the last time I actually logged into the site to make a comment.

This is brilliant.

I'd never have expected to see this at the top, but I'm glad it was. Odd, the details keep pulling me deeper into the scene. Awesome.

I keep coming back to the top knot, and the picture of the sailor in the bookcase. I am so VERY glad this did well. But how could it not? How could it not.

I'm so glad this did well, a truly wonderful photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 12:24:16 AM
I am humbled by the magnificence of this image. Tender, mundane, international, intimate, and a bit freaky. With an Eyeball Overlord. It may be one of my top 10 favorite images of all time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 12:20:36 AM
Oh, that's just frickin' incredible!

What a scene, as if he just finished an all-nighter of D&D, she's having a smoke, wondering. . . fixated. The 21st century Monster Manual.

Somehow I really love this shot. Everything, except for the fact that there's a TV there, is still. Amazing :)

You can't make this stuff up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2012 05:04:27 AM
I don't know what the hell is going on here but I love it. Great tones and contrast. Between the two characters and the eye ball, there is tons of interest in the details. The way the light falls from the upper right drawing your eyes through the woman's face to the man on the chair, into the weirdo video image. Good stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this is amazing...can't take my eyes out of this image...a life story in one photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There is something remarkable about this. There is a lot of detail here, but it all goes together nicely. The angle is great showing the side view of the woman and her expression is priceless. The dog (?) on the sleeping mans lap, his head tilted to the side, again, great expression. The shoes laid perfectly parallel and in front of the chair. Very nicely done. I hope this does well.
